Hello I'm Jess, I'm an enthusiastic, creative and highly organised individual; a quick learner with strong interpersonal, team-working and communication skills. I have an excellent knowledge of marketing platforms and brand partnerships - having spent time in a fast paced agency Sunshine and rights holder British Fashion Council. My key strengths include: relationship building, presentation and attention to detail. I've had my own photography company on the side of my 9-5 since 2010. On weekends I take portraits of young musicians and actors, I have also somehow got in to weddings..! I'm looking for a role where I can further my account management/brand partnership experience, in a business where there is structure to grow and progress.
I currently work in the British Fashion Council's sponsorship department, working with partners to promote their association with the fashion industry, via high profile events such as London Fashion Week and The British Fashion Awards. I’m responsible for a variety of select accounts, including American Express, TONI&GUY, L’Oreal and the London Evening Standard. New Business is also a significant focus of my day to day job; I’m responsible for researching and engaging with potential BFC partners, creating & delivering bespoke sponsorship presentations and packages. The negotiation of contracts from partner engagement through to signature is also a very important part of my role. My work with the British Fashion Council has given me significant exposure to commercial and corporate partnerships across a range of businesses and has built on my previous account management experience at creative/content agency, Sunshine.
??I was hired as Production Assistant, and Sunshine’s first permanent employee, to support the three Founders of the company in all areas of the business. Within eight months I was promoted to an Account Executive, working on Sunshine’s largest account, Baileys.
